The striker initially felt the injury during the 0-0 draw with Gillingham nine days ago and was replaced by John Marquis in the 54th minute after attempting to play through the niggle, which then ruled the forward out of training for the following week and he ended up missing the AFC Wimbledon clash on Saturday, a game which Portsmouth ended up losing 1-0.
Pompey currently sit 18th in the league table after 11 games with 13 points, having failed to win their last two games in the league under manager Kenny Jackett.
31-year-old Pitman, who pulled on the shirt of Portsmouth’s south-coast rivals AFC Bournemouth 301 times while scoring 102 goals for the Cherries, has made 94 appearances and scored 41 goals since signing for Pompey in the summer of 2017 after departing Ipswich Town in the Championship.
Is Pitman a big miss for Portsmouth?
Pitman has been one of the main players at Portsmouth so far this campaign, making 11 appearances and scoring three goals as he has linked up with Marquis and Ellis Harrison to help lead the Portsmouth line so far.
Pitman is bound to be a big miss for Portsmouth after being a vital part during their last two full campaigns in League Two, and the 31-year-old striker will be hoping to get back to fitness for the trip up north to face Bristol Rovers at The Memorial Stadium on Saturday as Pompey look to put their recent struggles behind them.
